Gifted Program at CLE

    The Gifted Program is an enrichment curriculum to stimulate and encourage creative learning for students.  The classroom uses divergent tasks to take the students outside their nine dots.  They are challenged with problem solving to develop critical thinking skills.  This approach requires alternative ideas.  There are several projects that require problem solving to create an acceptable solution.  In addition to hands on projects, they go on many field trips to learn firsthand the culture and creative methods of each place visited.  A real memorable learning experience engrained in each child.  
     Students in Gifted Class have unique opportunities to receive a participatory and experimental approach to learning.  The students achieve hands on levels of learning and knowledge not available in text books.  
    In order for a child to be in the Gifted Program, they must be first recommended to the Guidance office by their teacher or parents can request testing.  Your child's homeroom teacher is your first point of contact at the school.  Once they are recommended,  they will be tested to see if they qualify for gifted services.
